The Shire of Harvey is committed to supporting event organisers within the Shire to conduct well planned, responsible events. Event approval will be subject to the event organiser meeting the requirements of all relevant Shire of Harvey departments and external agencies. These requirements will include obtaining the necessary permits, insurance, notification of affected people and a variety of specific conditions according to the event.
To get started, you should submit an event application package including completing a handy checklist to identify what permits and approvals are required. Once received, processing of your application will begin by Council officers and a meeting will be arranged with you and a Shire Representative to discuss your event.
It is important that your application is lodged at least 15 weeks prior to your event so please allow plenty of time.
Applications and approvals for an event are not transferable. Therefore the organiser cannot transfer council approval for an event to an alternative venue, date or time, without re-negotiating with Council.
